Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The double-page spreads are filled with action and energy— cowboys on the boxes, rodeo clowns on the alert, the cantankerous bull twisting and bucking with Curly Kidd on his back. Dust, dirt, and grit fly. It all takes place under the wide expanse of a glorious blue sky that is as warm as the love and caring found in this exuberant story."—School Library Journal

"A young rodeo fan carries on a nervous dialogue with Dad, a champion performer who is about to board the back of White Dynamite, 'the meanest bull in the whole United States.'...Rand's pictures are vigorous and dynamic, easily conveying all the power and danger pent up in the bull."—Booklist

"A fine addition to any picture-book collection."—Kirkus Reviews

Meet the Author

Bill Martin, Jr. (1916-2004) was an elementary-school principal, teacher, writer, and poet. His more than 300 books, among them the bestselling classics Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?; Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?; Panda Bear, Panda Bear, What Do You See?; and Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, are a testament to his ability to speak directly to children. Martin held a doctoral degree in early childhood education. Born in Kansas, he worked as an elementary-school principal in Chicago before moving to New York City, where he worked in publishing developing innovative reading programs for schools. After several years, he devoted himself full-time to writing his children’s books. He lived in New York until 1993, when he moved to Texas. He lived in the east Texas woods, near the town of Commerce, until he passed away in 2004.

 

John Archambault is a poet, journalist, and storyteller who has collaborated with Bill Martin Jr. and Ted Rand on several books, including Barn Dance! and Knots on a Counting Rope.

 

Ted Rand (1915-2005) was a prolific artist whose illustrations appeared in several magazines and newspapers, as well as in numerous books for children. He collaborated with both Bill Martin, Jr. and John Archambault on many books, including Here Are My Hands.

    A favorite picture book about rodeos

    This is a book I wanted my granddaughter to be sure to know. It is especially appropriate for children with a connection to Wyoming since many of the cities named are in Wyoming, but it is an exciting book for children and parents who love rodeos and life in the West. There is a surprise ending that girls will especially like.
